Make better decisions about your PPO dental plans

I have been writing the Dentrix Office Manager blog for more than three years now and the top two blogs posts are about using Fee Schedules in Dentrix. The most popular is Fee Schedules . . . the Method of Choice forPPO Plans and #2 is Fee Schedules or Write Off’s . . . that is the Question.  I understand how important it is for you to have accurate and efficient systems and, at the same time, be able to see what your write-off’s are.  

I have been listening to you . . .
  • You have asked for bottom line PPO fee adjustment numbers without having to sort through multiple page reports. 
  • You have asked for patient demographic information so you can see how many patients are PPO dental plans without having to do multiple searches in Dentrix.
  • You have asked for more statistics so you can make better decisions about your PPO plans.

I Bring You . . .

If you are using Fee Schedules in Dentrix, you can now pull information to help you analyze and make better decisions about your PPO plans. I have teamed up with Great Minds, Inc., to bring you a report generator that will put all the statistics on one report for you in an easy-to-read format with customized parameters.

With this report, you can not only see your PPO production compared to UCR production, but it will also give you claim aging statistics, number of claim resubmissions, PPO patient visit information, and total broken appointments by fee schedule. This can help you target certain employers with PPO plans that have positive statistics or map out your schedule for a more productive day by being able to see which PPO patients keep their appointments and generate the most production per visit.

  1. Does this work for older versions of Dentrix, such as G4, or just G5?

    1. Hello Kellie, it only works with G5. Great reason to upgrade :)
